REVIEWS OF Holiday Bowl IN New Jersey

janre101 .

Just a regular bowling alley nothing special the League's can get a little intense and they take themselves very seriously

Mario Tarabocchia

Usually a decent place but horrible customer service. A group of us were bowling on Thursday during the unlimited bowling for 2 hours deal. We asked the manager for an extra minute because our last bowler only had his 10th frame. In most cases it is what it is but there were only 2 other lanes in use in a 24 lane house.

Alexander Loukianov

Don't let the outside of this location fool you as it did me. The inside is modern, comfortable and really well made/put together. One of the nicest bowling locations I have had the pleasure of going to.

We go to Holiday Bowl for the Kids Bowl Free program during the summers. They have been renovating things and it is really looking great! We have also done kids' birthday parties here and have been happy every time.

Been coming here since I moved to the area 17 years ago. It's a very friendly, fun place to go bowling. There's about 20-25 lanes, so almost always a spot to bowl. The staff is great, there's a decent bar and snack bar, and the lanes are good quality. You could come here for some serious bowling, or just for fun. They also recently installed new touchscreen score-things. There's lots of cool, albeit useless features, but cool nonetheless.

Nice bowling alley. Lots of league options for youth and adult.

JoAnn Cuccinello

We so much enjoyed time here. Nice well kept bowling alley. Great deals available on bowling especially for kids. Reasonably priced food and a full bar are great extras.

Alex Parisis

Went here 5 times on all different days of the week the past few months, including on a Saturday and every time they are full with leagues. If you’re going to always have leagues you mine as well stay closed to the public. It’s disappointing I can’t even bring my 5 year old daughter to the bowling alley in town. I used to love coming to this place as a kid and it’s unfortunate it’s become a league only place.

David Decoons

Clean and good lane conditions. Snack bar has good selection of food. Great for kid's parties.

Prakash Patel

Its a bowling place. Serves beer too.

Danny Rowland

It has your classic bowling feel. Its a little outdated, but its a lot of fun. They have a small arcade and some bar food. They even have a pretty good bar there. It's a reasonable local place for a night out. I even went to a charity event there and the whole place was rented out which was very relaxed and a lot of fun.

I recently had an experience where the 20 something year old manager, or so she calls herself, felt it necessary to ask us to leave based only on the words of a league bowler. Clearly, the management at Holiday Bowl is inexperienced and very junior in their experiences. And it is also clear that based on the opinion of a crazy league bowler, management will always take the side of the league participant (because they are friends). I still enjoyed my time there, especially since we only needed to pay for 1game, based on their stupid actions. This did not ruin our night, but only enhanced the comedic factor due to the humorous actions and management capabilities of Holiday Bowl...I recommend this place only if you need a good laugh!!!...disappointment for a local establishment!!!! but thank you for the laugh league know you are!!!! hahahahahahaagagagagagagagag

Can’t beat 10 cent game night. I usually go to fair lawn for a cheap bowling night, but this place is a good second if you are in the area.

Jennifer Steeber

Fun place! Very clean, with a friendly staff.



Charlotte Ran

Great deals. Doesn't smell very good.

We recently had an amazing experience for our daughters yr old birthday party. We've had many parties for our kids over the years at many places. Although from booking the party and many different packages available made it a no brainer. The staff there is is exceptional and friendly. We walked in and everything was already setup. With the kids shoe sizes at the lanes they were bowling at which made check in so quick and easy. There were actually food options for the kids to eat instead of just pizza. Any questions or issues were addressed before I could finish asking. Overall my daughter loved it! Her friends had a blast. Will definitely be going back!

John Atti

I haven't been to a bowling alley in a long time. I had an awesome time in this place, and from what I understand the prices aren't bad at all. Good bowling alley food, too.

Allen AC Coleman

Good staff and the fries are great! Decor is a little dated.

We went to this bowling facility and we had a great time. My family hasn't bowl for many years and I forgot as well. But the staff was very helpful and understanding. Helped set up the game and explained how to play. Couple of hours cost $56.00 for a family of four. Not bad. Good deal.

Great family friendly place with always something new... this is a nice, new, clean venue for parties, bowling or a solid lunch venue!

Jonathan Stammer

I love going to Holiday Bowl! The technology for each lane is far better than any other bowling alley I've been to. There is a lane chatter option that allow you to send messages between lanes and an option to take photos as your 'profile'. Overall, one of my favorite bowling alleys.

Jay Thailer

Good bowling and we stayed for Karaoke which was a lot of fun.

Nicholas Scilingo

Awesome bowling alley recently renovated.

Garrett Stahl

Loved this place as a child and now it seems like they are making some seriously awesome changes. Can't wait to see how it turns out!


The participated in the kids bowl FREE" for the summer, my 2 kids loved this place, great place to kill time, friendly staff and always helpful! Would go there at this point when summer ends as it really is a nice place!

Good place for a birthday party. Bar prices were a bit high but nothing outrageous.

Michael C

Very clean bowling alley and friendly staff. We went on a Sunday around 12 and it wasn't crowded at all. Would definitely recommend.

Benjamin Bohnhoff

Very nice inside

Gd Fire

My baby sister could probably cook better food. it took over 30 minutes to get 3 orders of mottzerella sticks and nobody liked them. Staff was ok though, if your going just to bowl knock yourself out but dont get mottza sticks

Mara Chomsky

Great spot to take the kids! Bit outdated.

Zasx Media

Besides the outside looks this place was pretty fun I went with a few friends did 2 games of bowling. They have a bar, food stand type of thing to buy common foods like chicken strips and pop. Also they got 3 crane machines and 3 video arcade games that all take 1 dollar bills. Besides that the lanes gave you optiona for "sides" which means no more gutter balls that was nice plus it only was 16usd and my soda was 3usd so for 19usd worth it

Suvir Narayan

Spacious and sufficient number of bowling lanes. Good options to eat and drink while you bowl. Ample parking space too.

Clean place. All the loaner balls were in great shape and the place wasn't crowded on a Friday night. Staff was courteous even though we were there until closing. Which can be frustrating. I'd go back again for sure

Violette Guterman

The floors around the lanes were so slippery, you could hardly even walk to the lane with the ball without slipping. The staff was not very friendly.

Paul Laycox

Going in thinking " it's a bowling alley" left thinking "an amazing bar with real decent food and service " Very good experience


Gud boy

Michael Flusk

Great time with the kids

Rose Spitler

debbie Procopio

They need to get rid of the tables in the bowling area. They take up to much room and invite food on the alley.

Samuel Kim

Colin Halpin

Kelly Masterson

guy mongillo

TJ Kapel

They should post league schedules online so u know when not to go

Michael Carvalho

Poor service, do not reccomend. Only choosing one star because no stars was not an option.

Great place

Sharon Hall-Schuth

Great for family fun when it's too cold to go outdoors...

Mike Rivera

Awesome bowling alley plus trivia

Dan McKenna

Great place

Benjamin Davis

The staff is friendly, they have 24 lanes but the snack shack needs improvement like, needs more food choices, more chefs, ETC; other than the snack stand, this is the bowling fount to go!!!

Colin Tallman

I bowl league here every week, and it's definitely the best one in the area. Reasonable pricing, friendly staff, and well maintained equipment. They recently added a brand new scoring system, and I rarely have a problem with the lane.
